  1. Can I substitute or leave out the cilantro? I’m one of those people for whom? cilantro tastes like soap and I can’t stand it even chopped into things.

  2. Yes we love it too. It’s actually just production music we get? from our licensed music library. Technically it’s not available to the public. But, we are planning on releasing a CD with some of this music because so many people have responded to it! So this one would be on the list of songs to add 🙂 !

  3. i have, its really easy to make! yeah i literally meant cockatoos, but they are? still my babies though!! lol 🙂

  4. Oh my gosh. I thought you were talking about your kids when you said cockatoos, but you are talking about real birds!! LOL. Too cute! Quinoa is one of my favorites. You should give it a? try!

  5. Can anyone tell who sings this and? the name of the song is? Love this song but can’t find it google ‘ing the lyrics etc..PLEASE help if you can.

  6. Ha I bet they would love it! Texture is more? like a hearty grain. Less like rice or pasta. Try it, you’ll like it, and if not…well then, there’s always the cockatoos standing by for a nibble? LOL

  7. It’s actually a grain. It’s high in protein, calcium and iron. Apparently, it contains an almost perfect balance of all eight essential amino acids needed for tissue development in humans! Who knew? We thought it was a good for all the “New Year’s Resolutionists” looking to? eat better. 🙂

  8. @idaminori @m0sas it’s so much better than couscous – it’s gluten free and considered a complete protein? source (it has a high protein content of 12–18% and contains essential amino acids).

  9. hmm..ive never tried couscous either.. im just gonna go ahead and try it. i heard parrots love the stuff, my birds are hungry little? boogers theyll eat anything, lol! thank you for helping me! 🙂

  10. It reminds me most of couscous, but it has a more ‘seedy’ texture. I love the stuff, although I don’t? know if I can speak for cockatoos!
